My wheel bearing is completely out and I cannot seem to find any information about the spindle nut size or torque spec.

174 ft lbs and I am reading 30mm. Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed. This video will show you how to use a torque wrench correctly.

Replacing the brakes on left rear. Pulled drum and the inner race stayed on the spindle. It won't come off. Any sugestions for removing it?

You can try prying it off or gently tapping it from behind but the bearing may have overheated and welded the race to the knuckle. If that is the case, the knuckle will have to be replaced also.

If it is something that supposed to come off, use a little heat on it. Your local autostore--walmart should have a small bottle of something, I dont know if its propane or what. You can use that to put some heat on it, then see if it will come off. I tried to look up wheel races in my parts book, didn't see it.
